Thank you


There is definitely a pair in this group that have taken to each other. They hang out together and chase the two others away. Whether they are a breeding pair is a different story.

I hope so. (crosses fingers).

Finally moved the Altums to the 180 gallon. I waited too long to transfer them over because of my nervousness in putting them from one tank to another. Watching them carefully, however, because of the large school of African tetras. None of these tetras have nipped at the long tailers of the geophagus sveni; but, that doesn't mean they wouldn't nip at the Angels. So far so good.

They are a bit timid of the oafish geophagus-- but, these guys are like silly puppy-dogs. Seriously, they are the most docile cichlids Ive ever had. Beautiful; but, not the smartest.

I haven't posted a picture of the altums since put in the big tank about six weeks ago. They are doing just fine in here- despite having to live with a bunch of oafish geophagus.

I couldnt get a picture of all four of the angels, but here is a pic of a couple together. Id say they are about 8 months old now.

They're beautiful! How big are they now? Any pairing activity?

Thank you! I would hate to even hazard a guess on how big they are. Not sure. I would have expected that they would have been bigger by now; but, I think I left them in the smaller tank too long and this set them back in growth a bit. No breeding behaviors- but, definitely pairing. This is a pair that hangs out continuously-- so good indication that it is a male/female.

I really want to get some altums at some point. Maybe my next big tank. Or the one after that. No idea when that will be though! Maybe years away before I can afford it. So much to work on with my new house.
